In her nearly 30 year long career in showbiz, Mariah Carey has been quite a force to be reckoned with.
Garnering hits after hits and sustaining a career for as long as she has, MC has been quite a role model for young girls, who aspire to be Pop vocalists.
In a fitting tribute to her musical contribution, the diva has been announced as the official recipient of this year’s Billboard Icon award.
The superstar, who’s also nearing the 30th anniversary of her self-titled debut album which came out in the year 1990, will be honored during the May 1st airing of the ceremony.
Billboard also announced that the songstress will take the stage to perform some of her hits, before receiving the honor, which has previously been given to the likes of Prince, Celine Dion, Janet Jackson and Jennifer Lopez.
